There is a very strong contingent from the USA headed over for the 2017 rendition of the Dubai World Cup.
As it has since 2010 the race starts with anything trainer Bob Baffert sends out.
Interesting race they have compiled here without a major standout – that may be a good thing as both wound up flopping last weekend.
Two stops on the East Coast on the Derby trail this weekend, one at Aqueduct and the other at Gulfstream. Both of the races are worth 50-20-10-5 Kentucky points to the first four finishers. Let’s start with head to the shadows near Arkham and have a look at the Gotham.
Mardi Gras is right around the corner so it only makes sense to swing by the Fair Grounds for a bevy of stakes action. The highlight on the card is the Risen Star, but it is surrounded by a number of other graded stakes with four making up the All Stakes Pick 4. Let’s have a look at that.
Two stops on two days on the Road to the Roses this weekend, one on Saturday at Golden Gate Fields and one on Monday at Oaklawn Park. Let’s start in California.
